5 out of 5 stars Got it

What a great climb. You can work most of the hard climbing with a pad. Bring a #2 C3 for the top of the hard climbing then a #3 camalot, #4 stopper and #1 camalot. Great route, go do it!!!

2 out of 5 stars FAILED

There really needs a new "ascent style" called "FAILED" (or more nicely "PROJECT").

Strugled up about a third of the way with a tight belay on this slick and sloppy crack. Total and utter failure, but still wanted to put it on the log as a reminder of what I need to work towards... kinda like that picture of Alessandra Ambrosio in my bathroom that inspire me to work out.
